Good location for the price you pay. Beautiful view from the terrace. Be prepared to walk about 750 stairs each way to the main beach and back. I feel like you have to be physically in shape to stay here, or have a car/scooter. Stayed here while backpacking through Europe with a friend so obviously we were walking everywhere. I... More

Great spot for backpackers - its definitely not luxurious, but Positano is expensive and it is one of the cheaper ways to get to stay in such a beautiful place. It was cozy and the people were friendly. Nice patio with a great view of the ocean, welcoming and inclusive and they do a good job of having a good... More

This hostel is great, I definitely enjoyed my 3-night stay. Staff organize nights out to a club in a cave, they offer homemade food that the owner cooks (cannelloni, penne with homemade sauce, etc..) and it's all amazing. Lots of Lemoncello is consumed at the bar during the evening (they've got great happy hour deals on alcohol), music plays, laughs... More

It's by no means luxury, but this little hostel was lovely. Bathrooms were reasonably clean, with hot showers available between certain hours (this was not a problem). There is a kitchen in the hostel that offers breakfast and dinner for a good price. For breakfast there is a range of options that you should definitely try out, and for dinner... More

Best hostel we stayed at in Italy!! Amazing view, friendly guys who worked there and the most communal, social place we stayed at. Wifi, cheap bar and best shower facilities we've used (definitely have had some shockers). Definitely choose the 10 mixed dorm over the female only, really spacious and clean. Breakfast offered and accomodation the cheapest you'll find in... More

My two friends and I stayed in a private room which overlooked the water while we were in Positano. This hostel is in a great location and is very affordable. We met lots of cool people and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! I would definitely recommend it!

Worst place I have ever stayed and I have almost no standards as all I care about is a place to crash at night and spend my days out and touring. I've been all over the world and was even homeless for a time- I am not picky- but this place was icky. There is a very good reason why... More

They were accommodating, helpful, friendly and made us feel like family. Also her cooking and homemade lemonciello was incredible. I am 100% going back there... More

I LOVED my stay here. The staff are helpful and extremely friendly, they really made our stay! The view is absolutely breathtaking, and there is a lovely balcony to appreciate it from where the guests tended to congregate. Everything was really clean and the atmosphere was really lovely. Cristiana and Pete's Italian cooking was out of this world. They have... More
